6:46 am
argument? >> do the proponents of the lawsuit have a valid argument? well, it's very unorthodox to go to a state court and ask it to limit or clarify a federal court ruling. experts say this really isn't the right place to even have this argument. the state supreme court where the motion has been filed is not appropriate. they should go back to the federal court if they want to take issue with the ruling and have that judge and that court clarify the scope of their ruling in the case. >> would do you think the supreme court will do? >> the california supreme court? >> yes. >> reporter: this is -- first of all, with regard to whether same-sex marriages are going to be halted, that would be an extraordinary remedy. and if that were something that the supreme court was going to do, basically it would mean that they are about to rule for the protectmarriage.com folks. so whether or not the underlying case is a good one, really that's what dictates whether an injunction will
6:47 am
issue. again, it would be extraordinary remedy and it probably isn't the right forum. the supreme court will probably kick this case out saying this isn't the right place and at that point the protectmarriage.com folks can go to federal court and sort of attempt to make the same argument there. this is really never going to end. >> we'll be talking about this for years. will it ever be over? >> potentially never. because the u.s. supreme court punted on the underlying issue of the right to marry for same- sex couples, we are going to continue to see various groups attempting to chip away at various state laws but whether it be a state law allowing gay marriage or prohibiting gay marriage throughout the country until we have -- an underlying ruling on this issue of the right to marry, this is probably never going to end. there is no mercy rule when it comes to lawsuits. [ laughter ] >> wasn't there a little codicil not only the plaintiffs but the county of san francisco jumped in on that lawsuit, as well. right? so aren't they covered even if they overturn this? >> we are in a very good
6:48 am
position. so there are three -- again, the protectmarriage.com folks are saying that the federal judge -- the federal ruling in this case was limited to just the parties in that case. and when you say something like that you look at who are the parties in the case san francisco made sure we were one of them so san francisco, alameda, los angeles, and in addition to the two couples that were plaintiffs in the case, even if the court were to find that the ruling was limited, san francisco is in a great position to say, hey, we're still -- the ruling still applies to us. you can come here and get married and eat at our restaurants and buy our things and stay at our hotels. >> come one, come all. >> thanks. >> remember, you can find more of melissa's segments on kpix.com/mornings. a jump in car sales led retail sales higher last month. here's kcbs radio's financial reporter jason brooks on this monday morning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, frank. good morning, michelle. turns out that june was a pretty weak month overall for retailers. yeah, car and truck sales were
6:49 am
really good. they were up 1.8% on the month and as a result the commerce department says overall retail sales were up .4%. strip out cars and gas sales and overall sales were flat. down from the prior month. gas sales were up by .7%. it was the best month for car and truck sales though since november. a number of other retail sectors like building and gardens and also grocery stores and restaurants and bars all had pretty weak months in june. there have been ongoing rumors for months now that apple is working on an iwatch. further confirmation from the financial times looks like the release of that device might be a little bit later than a lot of people expected. some thought we might see an iwatch this fall when apple releases its next versions of its iphone and ipad but the times says it probably won't happen until the second half of next year. wall street started out today in record territory for both the dow and the s&p. kind of a bit of a pause going
6:50 am

[ laughter ] time now for a look at what's coming up later on "cbs this morning." it's monday, that means charlie rose is in the big chair in new york. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. ahead, not guilty but still facing possible criminal and civil legal action. we'll ask cbs news legal analyst jack ford what's next for george zimmerman. plus, are car dealerships a thing of the past?

we'll take a look at palo alto- based automaker tesla motors. they are change the business of buying a car. and aaron sorkin is in studio 57. so the news is back in the morning. we'll see you at 7:00. >> sounds good. we'll see you then, charlie. thanks. well, the cost of gas is expected to make a big jump in the next couple of weeks. some analysts predicting a per gallon increase of 10 to 15 cents mostly because of the rising cost of crude oil. here are the current local gas prices by metro area here. according to gasbuddy.com, regular unleaded $3.96 in san jose, $4.07 in san francisco and in oakland $3.97, 25 cents higher than a year ago. violators who drive the carpool lanes face stiffer fines now increasing to $491. there is some confusion because signs in different counties post different amounts. but kpix 5 confirmed that the
6:52 am
new amount is $491 despite what the sign says. official says it's expensive to keep replacing signs statewide. someone who recently went to a san francisco liquor store is suddenly wealthy. that person bought a powerball lottery ticket that was good for second prize in saturday night's drawing. state lottery officials say the ticket was bought at the cable car wine and spirits grocery on clement street. the ticket matched the five main numbers 2, 8, 22, 35 and 37 but not the number 6 for the powerball number which would have made the ticket worth more. the winner has 180 days to claim his prize. more than $2 million by the way for that second place prize. the high-tech tool that firefighters used here in san mateo to battle an apartment fire. a live report coming up. >> ,,,,,,,,,,,,,, the thing is bee,

i'm sue kwon in san mateo with every firefighters were able to put out -- where firefighters were able to put out a fire using a high-tech device. they are cleaning up now. on the second floor where the open window is, that's near where the fire broke out around 1 a.m. apparently, there was smoke coming through a vent and when firefighters arrived here, they had to use a heat sensing thermal imaging camera to see where the fire had started in that area on the second floor inside the walls. they were able to pinpoint the area, knock that fire down and ventilate for the smoke getting the smoke out of the building. unfortunately, the sprinklers went off and there was quite a bit of water damage to about 6 units. so residents had to be evacuated in the building in those six units. but right now, clean-up is
